    We’ve no abiding city here.
    Sad truth, were this to be our home;
    But let the thought our spirits cheer.
    We seek a city yet to come.


    We’ve no abiding city here;
    Then let us live as pilgrims do;
    Let not the world our rest appear,
    But let us haste from all below.


    We’ve no abiding city here;
    We seek a city out of sight;
    Zion its name, the Lord is there:
    It shines with everlasting light!


    Oh, sweet abode of peace and love,
    Where pilgrims freed from toil are blest;
    Soon will our souls outspeed the dove
    And be within thy walls at rest.
